Apple Updates the MacBook Pro with Eight-Core Processors; Now Available at B&H

Apple has given the MacBook Pro even more power with the Mid-2019
update, adding options with eight-core processors. The new 8th- and
9th-generation Intel® Core™ processors will dramatically speed up all
types of power-intensive tasks.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#Applelt;/agt;–B&H is pleased to share news that will be welcome by all those who count
on the power of MacBook Pro. As the need for packing more power into
increasingly smaller form factors continues to grow, Apple has refreshed
its MacBook Pro lineup with 8th- and 9th-generation Intel® Core™
processors, and the top-tier model is equipped with eight cores, which
is a first for the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro has long been a tool for
media and content creators, including music producers, 3D designers,
photographers, developers, scientists, researchers, and video editors,
and this update delivers up to twice the performance of a quad-core
MacBook Pro and up to 40% more performance than a six-core MacBook Pro.
Behind these updated processors is the same framework that has helped
shape the MacBook Pro into the mobile powerhouse that it is—powerful
graphics, a Retina display with 500 nits of brightness and the P3 wide
color gamut, fast NVMe PCIe M.2 SSDs, Thunderbolt™ 3, the T2 security
chip, long battery life, and macOS.
